TUoDoIIupW Do Vt Spend
Wo have to calrulnte pretty close at
our house, you know; and the whole
family nre called Into council when any
Impoitant .expenditure Is to bo made.
Well, the other evening we wen con
sidering the small .remnant of the qdar
ter's salary, and Mrs. Dubhs was try
ing to reckon how It could be made to
cover everything. Thero was a new
dress, arid a new coat for me, and a
new carpet for the best parlor, and a
new hat for cur (at presentlunmarried
daughter, besides a great many other
tilings, with which I may not occupy
your valuable space. Tlie I'ualn point
wns I lie new dress, and Mrs. Dohbs was
thinking of this sl tile, aud scrutlnzlug
that pattern, wishing she could buy
them all, doubt lug If she cntitd buy any
ol them; and our faces grew longer ns
tho salary crew shorter. Presentlv.
with one of my happy Inspirations, I
said to her;
'Mrs. Dohbs, there Is no dollar that
doesjyou so much good as the one you
don tape-nil. '
She looked nt me a littlo perplexed
and presently Raid, 'Why doctor, Idou't
understand you '
Sa I said, 'The handsomest dress
Is thu)one you don't buy.'
'Oil yes that's true. The best dtpsa I
ever had was the silk that Mrs. Largn
head gave me, when she cime 'from
Lehlghton. She bought It at E. II.
Solder's ; it couldn't havci cost less
'Mrs. Dohbs.'sald T, Interrupting her,
the han Isomest and every way tlo
best dres Is the one you don't have.',
bhe was more puzrl.d than ever, and
I was forced to explain.
lrs. Dobbs,' said I, 'all the dresses
you ever bought have worn out, haven't
'Yes,' said she; very promptly, 'all
of tbem. I haven't a decent fhlnc to
my nntne. There Is my Imiiibazlne
-turn, a moment, l 1 said, for I was
mm tally 'afnild to have her yet up that
loplc. 'ntul did ou ever buy a dress,
ever havo a dress any way, that jou
didn't have some misgivings over; that
you didn't spe some defect in; thai you
didn't rather wish that you had bought
'I believe you are right,' slio sa!d
lint, said i,- "the dress that you
don't buy lias no faults; you are never
tiled of It; it never grows old; never
fades; never wears out; or, If you want
to chaugo, how easily the change Is
'Why, yes,' said Jfrt. Dobbs; 'I never
thought or that before.'
'And so,' Mid I, 'of your dollar,
You never spent a dollar in our life,
that you didn't feel at least a doubt as
to whether you had ipent It wisely,
You wMied you had bought something
olsd. Put the wish' was vain;you couldn't
make a change. The dollar that you
spend you can't spend but once, but
the dollar that you don't spend. you can
spend a hundred times, You can buy
a hundred things with It every time
you go out. If you are dissatisfied with
any of your puiclmsei, you can go back
and, begin all over. And so, I contlnti.
ed, 'the dollar that you don't spend
does you a great deal more good than
the dollar that yo I do spend; and, better
than all, it brings with It no regrets, no
Mrs. Dobbs looked as though she didn't
know Just how to answer me, but at the
same time as though she wasn't quite
convlnrel. Presently she n,ild:
ell, doctor, I don't know that I see
through it all; but no doubt you are
right, for you are a great deal wiser
than I am. And so we will go oo that
principle. I will take the dollar that
we do spend.-and you shall have the
dollar that we don't spend, which is,
as you have showed, ;so much the better
ot the two.,
An imaginative Irishman gave ut
terance to'thls lamentation: "I return
